Abstract

The main aim of this study will be to empirically determine the effectiveness of using Dunning eclectic 'OLI' theoretical framework to explain the Chioce of Entry Mode made by American Multinational Companies (MNCs) into Ireland in the period 1999 to 2010.
This study will explore how Ownership Advantages, Location Advantages and Internalization advantages (‘OLI’) influence their Choice of Entry Mode made between greenfield investment ( wholly Owned) and joint venture (JV) by American multinational companies. The most important factors among these three sets of advantages will also be identified and hopefully, this study will also provide suggestions and knowledge on different Chioce of Entry Modes for American MNCs that decide to invest in Ireland in the future.
